Well you all know my boy, but I thought some of you would like to see all the other horses at the stable where I board. I'll post a picture or two of them, and a little bit about them
Beaux (Or Bo Bo as we call him
) is a 26 year old Red Dun QH. He doesn't show his age at all....the barn owner tried to retire him...but Beaux proved her wrong by galloping in his pasture while the kids were going to get horses for a lesson.
He's a great jumper and has won numberous blue ribbons for jumping, and dressage
Shoni is a 25 year old Paint mare who can be extremely moody with other horses. She is retired, but is used lightly for beginner lessons if no other horse is available. Though used for beginner lessons, ALL of the little kids are afraid of her...maybe the reason is, is that she ditched 4 of the 6 little kids (2 was bucking them off...and 2 was bolting). She does have spunk left in her, but due to arthritis and ringbone her work load had to be decreased.
Back in her "glory days" she won LOADS of blue ribbons for jumping, dressage, and western pleasure.
Devon is a 14-ish year old Morgan gelding. The handsomest horse at the stables (next to Sonny of course
). He's a great, well trained horse....he's too well trained to buck or rear even if he's REALLY ticked off at the rider. His only riding vice is that if he stops and parks out, he'll get stuck :roll: haha
He's the barn owners horse, and has been in shows, but she used him mainly for jumping and trails.
Lucky is a 5 year old Paint Gelding and is the best 5 year old ever. He is used for beginner lessons occasionally (for walk/trot only), but also is the barn owner's favorite horse. He is calm, level headed, and tolerant of little kids. He's a pure western horse and he has the slowest of gaits...(let's just say that Sonny can walk faster than he can trot)
Levi is a 15 year old QH/Morgan cross. He's stubbern like a mule but loves attention and food haha. He can drive a cart as well as neck-rein, and jump. He's a great little pony (I think he's 14.2 hands...not sure though)
Cocoa is a 12 year old Gypsy Vanner...he, like all the other horses, are used for lessons, but don't count on riding him...the girl that rides him is overly protective of him...you can't even pet him without her yelling at you :roll:
If there's any horse to pity, Cocoa is the one.he overworked by the girl (yes the BO has talked to her many times about it, and so have I...as barn manager...but she doesn't listen). He's a good horse though and though he doesn't look like it, he's a great jumper!
Chewy is a 5 year old Paint gelding...with an attitude as bad as the devil himself, he may not be the favorite at the barn, but he is by far one of the best jumpers.
Lazy...um...sorry...Jack is a 11 year old Belgian/Appaloosa cross and he's the laziest horse ever. You can barely get him to walk...and really just forget about trotting and cantering haha.
Okay honestly he's not THAT bad...but he's annoying to ride. He's a head tosser while riding so be prepared to get pulled around. With that big of a head, it's hard to control him
Heart is a 9 year old Paint gelding with an awesome spot! Can't you see why he was named Heart?! One word to describe him....CRAZY! haha...he loves to bolt, and is really spooky
Zoey is a 4 year old green broke Paint mare. Though she seems to love attention, she sure can be a brat. She'd make a GREAT hunter or even an endurance or cross country.
Can you say the cutest pony ever?! hehe...Scribbles is an old Shetland pony and is the cutest pony ever (yes I know I've said that before) He's used mainly as a pasture pet because he's fairly oldish, but he's the cutest pasture pet ever
Star is a pretty 10 year Paint mare whom is my favorite mare at the place. Her attitude is mean, she is known to buck, but she behaves perfect for people she likes. She's used for beginner + lessons...and is a great trail horse
(yes I know the rider can't really ride...or at least needs to learn riding posture haha)
Murphy is a 16 year old Paint gelding. He's fast, he's strong willed, and is NOT a beginner horse. He's thrown two people just this year and I'm sure there will be more. He's a great western horse, and runs barrels with ease...like it was second nature
(again rider looks horrible...don't comment on her haha)
Spice is a 5 year old QH gelding who is more of a pasture pet than a lesson horse. He, sadly, has navicular really bad and if ridden he's lame just after warming up
Annabell is the other boarder and Sonny's girlfriend. She is maybe 10 years old and hasn't been ridden by her owner in a good 2 years. She was ridden last week by someone who was interested in buying her, but that's about it.
